Manifesto from Generation Rent Et al

According to yesterday's edition of The Times "The shadow chancellor has watered down a plan to introduce a “right to buy” for tenants in the private rented sector. The policy would be aimed at the wealthiest landlords and would not apply to those who own only “one or two” rental properties, he said. “There’s a large number of individuals or families who have bought another property as their asset for the future and we wouldn’t want to endanger that,” he said."

Crowd Justice appeal: Gas Safety Certificate and Section 21

Reply to the comment left by Denise G at 21/08/2019 - 10:55I think you read it correctly Denise "This flat did not have any gas appliances, but the gas safety certificate was still issued....." Like you I was confused. Surely no gas, no certificate required. Perhaps it simply had a gas boiler, in which case a certificate is a must, but I'm only guessing. Otherwise, as you say, why would you need a gas certificate for something that doesn't exist? Perhaps someone can clarify.... Read More
